Artie once again proved how awesome his brain is during his first xc schooling. We had issues with our video camera called somebody turned it on in the bag and drained the battery so it was dead. Very frustrating!
We went to Carousel Park and rode out with my mom on CMA’S Hold that Halo. Did I mention that I would like to steal him??? Wow, he’s just so lovely. She brought him over a week ago and I didn’t want to get off of him. Not only is he just lovely to look at but he jumps anything you point him at!
I was super proud of Artie. He didn’t look at a thing and hacked around on a loose rein. At one point my mom went off to jump a course and I was there all by myself which on a greenie can sometimes be a really bad thing. Artie didn’t even care. Yes, he noticed but besides pooping several times you wouldn’t have known he was at all nervous about it.
He really seemed to enjoy the water jump and we practiced going up and down some banks which he thought were fun.
Whoa…calm down…wild ottb on the loose 🙂
Look how hard he’s concentrating
Down banks always feel so awkward

Kurt caught this great picture of my mom jumping her first jump into the water on Halo. What a brave boy!
We were supposed to get snow but looks like that is not happening now so I think I may be able to get in a nice trail ride tomorrow on Artie where we go to jump some more logs.
